"Take me out tonight"
I've read many comments that Hairdresser on Fire is about Morrissey's relationship with his hairdresser. However, I believe that instead it is Morrissey looking at society and ashamed at how much people are concerned with their looks. Keep in mind lines such as, "Is it free of the home or what?" "You may be oppressed but you're remarkably dress, is it real?" and other such lines, how only a hairdresser can save or destroy a person.
